"LORD, Bring Revival!" Psalm 51:12

2,498 views 3 years ago
"LORD, BRING REVIVAL!" Okay everybody! If you're SAVED, stand up and say, "AMEN"! Now, all you who saved yourselves by "accepting Jesus", please sit down. Sit down and listen to this very concise message from Don Fortner of Grace Baptist Church in Danville, KY on the nature of salvation as God reveals it in His Holy Word, The Bible. "FREE WILL OR FREE GRACE?" http://www.sermonaudio.com/...

Is salvation something man can apprehend by making a decision to "accept Jesus?" Or is salvation a gift, freely given by the Sovereign Will of Almighty God to whom He will? Can we have it both ways? Is man DEAD in sin, REALLY DEAD? Or is man just a little bit DEAD?

Are you confused by preachers, pastors and teachers who are not telling you the truth about the nature of salvation? Does your pastor want it both ways, to please all those in the congregation who love the lie that salvation is "up to you"? Is it true that you can "get out of the sinking boat you're in and get into that other boat over there", you know, the one that Jesus is sailing around in? I'd rather be entertained by sword-swallowers than listen to a blasphemous sermon like that.

You've read the Bible and you know what God has plainly declared: "...thou shalt call His Name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins". (Matthew 1:21) So why do the folks at church try to hush you up when you dare to believe God's Word on the subject of who will be saved, and how, and by Whom? Are you wondering why the offense of the Gospel offends church folk more than the harlots and tax collectors? Are you slapped down by them with the, "We are all brethren," lie?

They say, "Election? Predestination? Oh my, my, my! That's strong meat! It will be YEARS before a babe in Christ can chew on that!"

Know this: You've come face to face with the Pharisees. These are the unclean religious do-gooders who make merchandise of men's souls. Jesus called them "white-washed sepulchres, full of dead men's bones". So nice and orderly on the outside, but full of the madness of unrestrained sin on the inside.

Do you know a man who dares to call himself "pastor", who is aware of God's sovereignty in the salvation of His elect, and refuses to preach it? Such a man is an enemy of our LORD Jesus Christ and a thief among the people of God. They love the praise of men and are in "the ministry" for themselves and for nobody else. To them, telling lies is a lucrative business, but telling the truth would hurt the bottom line. Arthur and I call these people, "JesusPAC", for they use our LORD's Name in vain for political approval and personal gain.

Jesus had strong words for those who opposed His Word. We should, too. He said, "My sheep hear My Voice, and I know them and they follow Me: and I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My Hand." John 10:27,28

Oh, how we pray that the "other gospel" would be exposed for what it is - a cheap marketing ploy to dry clean and dust off the walking dead. NO! Sinners must be plunged in the cleansing fountain opened for sinners, the fountain filled with the precious blood of The Lamb of God. But how does this happen? How can this be?

Thank you, Pastor Fortner, for your tireless defense of The Gospel of The Marvelous Grace of The LORD Jesus Christ. Exposing that other man-centered gospel of "good intentions" and "making the right choices in life" is a necessary step we must take on the road to revival.

ABOUT THE MUSIC: Six years have passed since I wrote the hymn "LORD, Bring Revival!" and the LORD has done SO MUCH since then to encourage us in our prayer! Yes, He has given us many tokens that He is ever present and ever mindful of our plight and our desire to see His great Salvation poured forth in us and through us.

Believer, do not cease to beg our Gracious LORD for revival! We must press on in our desire to see free-will religion toppled as the truth of the Gospel of His Sovereign Grace is expounded by faithful souls who know Him and have tasted of the gift of saving faith. We who know, by experience, that Christ is dwelling in us understand that He Alone is the Hope of Glory! Without Him, all is death and darkness. Press on, every soul who knows the Redeemer. Never be silenced, but shout the more! Shout to your Blessed Saviour, "LORD, Bring Revival!"

Do you believe that the LORD can shake the heaven and the earth as He gathers in His elect people in our day? If you do, you will want to hear this sermon from Don Fortner again and again: "Once More, O LORD, Once More!" http://www.sermonaudio.com/...

The music is FREE! Here is the arrangement for SATB choir and piano:

John Newton's Olney Hymnal of 1779 Play

Did you know that anyone can browse online through the hundreds of sacred hymn poems written by John Newton? Yes, it's true. John Newton's famous Olney Hymnal of 1779 is posted online at the Library of Congress Rare Books Division website. When I discovered Newton's Olney Hymnal, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the poems he wrote so many years ago. I wondered with astonishment, that of all his great hymns, only "Amazing Grace" is widely known. And unfortunately, that lovely hymn is also widely misunderstood. Everybody and their second cousin can belt out, "Amazing Grace", at the drop of a hat! Any occasion will do: an earthquake, a blizzard, troops coming home from war, the launching of a new yacht, the swatting of a fly - "Hey everybody! Let's sing, Amazing Grace!" It's especially the song of choice at the funeral of every unbeliever, isn't it? Every unrepentant, ungodly thief is entombed with the words to "Amazing Grace" on the lips of the mourners. Everybody sings it outside the prison gates when the convicted murderer is executed. It's a song everybody can agree on, that's for sure. Well, I looked at Newton's wonderful, unknown, forgotten hymn poems in The Olney Hymnal and I asked the LORD to give me grace to write new melodies for Newton's words, with the express intention of making known the Gospel of God's Free Grace in our day - the Gospel Mr. Newton loved and expounded with power, indeed. You may ask why his wonderful hymn poems are unknown and why "Amazing Grace" is so misunderstood. ANSWER: Due to the famine of the hearing of the Word of God, a dearth that has engulfed our nation and the whole world. So I present these hymns to you now, praying that many of God's children will be built-up in the true faith and edified in a day of deep spiritual darkness. (Oh, by the way, I hope to write a new melody for "Amazing Grace", hoping that all the Joan Baez, Engleburt Humperdinck, Lemonhead versions will disappear in the light of the truth of John Newton's immortal verse. May that old tune, that suffered so much abuse at the hands of strangers, be dissolved away and may the truth of Newton's words be refreshed and well-learned by seeking souls by means of a new melody!)

"No Condemnation Now" Romans 8:1 Play

Our LORD Jesus Christ settled the matter of the salvation of his elect people long before you were born, long before this world was made! Oh yes, this is the truth of the Gospel of God's Sovereign Free Grace to chosen sinners in the Person and Work of His Darling Son, the LORD Jesus Christ. This is the God of the Bible - not the flimsy, cardboard god of modern evangelical will worship - not the sad, wimpy god who really loves everybody, but darn it all, will send you to hell if you don't be good. NO WAY! That's not the True and Living God! The Scripture declares that "...He shall save His people from their sins..." (Matthew 1:21), and for these chosen ones, the Israel of God, the elect from before the foundations of the earth, every stroke of the clock, every nano second in this dispensation of time, will bring the LORD Jesus Christ closer to their appointed hour of love. He will reveal Himself to each one by the hearing of the Word of God to their souls. They will know Him as the great and glorious God, Who Himself, took upon Himself the sin of His people. He suffered eternal hell on their behalf and thus, set them free from sin and death forevermore. Each child of the Living God, each bride of the Lamb, will hear the Word of God, will believe and will come to Him for cleansing, forgiveness, justification and life. For these blessed souls, "there is therefore now no condemnation", for they are indwelled with the Spirit of Christ, they walk in His Spirit and no longer walk after the way and fashion of this dying world. They recognize the false gospel of Cain and shun it, for it is blasphemy against their God and His Glorious Salvation. So tell me, what will you do to be saved? What would you give to know, for a certainty, that you have been cleansed of all your sin - past, present and future - and have received the gift of eternal life? What would you give to begin again, to begin a whole new day? What will you give to God to please Him? Do you deserve to enter into His Holy Hill, because you want to? Do you have a free will and have decided that serving God makes sense (as long as all your service will earn you something in the end)? ANSWER NOW THIS QUESTION: Will you give nothing? Will you do nothing? Can you simply believe that God has saved His people from their sins? Shall not the God of all the earth do whatsoever He is pleased to do with all His possessions?

I now present this music to you in His Holy Name, for Jacob's chosen race will come. May God's people be encouraged to proclaim the majesty of their LORD and Saviour in this present distress. Here are videos of 8 of my new hymns - each one is based on a specific Scripture Text. Be sure to read the blog comments and listen to the excellent sermons posted with each new hymn.
